How to use Tor Browser

Tor Browser is a special kind of web browser that helps keep you anonymous online. Tor Browser is free and open source software, made by the Tor Project.

To start using Tor Browser, open it on your computer. The first time you start it, it will download all the information that it needs to work. This can take a while, especially on a slow internet connection. After the installation is complete, you will be asked to pick your language of choice. Once that is done, you will have to download the Tor Browser plugins of your choosing. After that, you will be ready to use Tor Browser!

How Tor works: Every time you connect to the internet via a browser or a social network, your IP address is recorded and visible to anyone with access to that information. The IP address is a unique number assigned to your computer by your internet service provider each time you connect to the internet. It works like a phone number for a phone – it allows others to find you. On the internet, you can be identified based on your IP because it gives away your location. For example, someone can see if you’re from the United States or United Kingdom by seeing the country code in your IP address.

When you use Tor, your device sends encrypted traffic through a series of randomly selected servers called nodes. These nodes disguise your IP address so users can’t be traced or monitored by the network operators. This means that no one but you can view your data and use Tor. Some sites or services may block Tor traffic, however, so you should be aware before you visit a site or service if it’s compatible.

How to access (.onion) site?

In order to access

Type the Onion address for the dark website you want to visit into the address bar of Tor Browser, or click its entry on the New Identity page.

Open the Tor Browser application and load the page you wish to visit (I have chosen to go to an onion address). To protect yourself against attempts to monitor your activity, you might consider turning off JavaScript in the settings of the Tor Browser application. To do this, click on the wrench icon and select “Options.” Then click the checkbox labeled “Disable Javascript.” Click “OK” to close

To access a dark web resource, you will need to know its web address to the letter. These websites will also use (.onion) top-level domain names, and many of them will be very long, random combinations of letters and numbers. 

 Onion Links to Dark Website Search Engines

The dark web doesn’t host any traditional search engines like Google, for example. However, it’s still possible to navigate the dark web landscape safely — if you know where to look. A number of the following sites might help you along your way. Remember that you need to open these onion links in the Tor Browser for them to work.

As you can see on the below screenshot you can type the dark website here
